We’re into another new week at camp, and there are so many exciting things happening already! Last night we were treated to our first theatre show of the summer, with the Freshkids and Sophomores performing The Little Mermaid. I forgot we were even sitting in the theatre because the amazing cast took us under the sea with their incredible version of the Disney classic. Our talented theatre staff and campers had us all humming the tunes long after the show was done, and I was still marveling at the fantastic costumes and sets that took us into the underwater world! I can’t wait until the next theatre show, but until then I’ll be singing ‘Part of Your World,’ and thinking about this amazing start to the theatre season.
Just this morning, after I had practically licked my plate clean from the buffet, I had to say goodbye to some friends I’ve made over the past two weeks. Our two-week campers got on the bus and left us this morning, but judging by the hugs and smiles, I have a feeling we’ll be seeing them again next summer. It’s hard to believe so much time has gone by already this summer, but time flies when you’re having fun!
After the bus had rolled out of camp and out of view, our regular Thursday morning activities started. We had Hobby Hubs as usual–activities for campers who don’t sleep-in–and this week’s Hobby Hub were bracelet making and a 3-on-3 basketball tournament run by some of our great LITs. Between the tournament this morning and our 2-Ball Tournament yesterday, I’m starting to think we have some future NBA players on our hands!
Our Thursday morning fun may be coming to a close, but there’s still more to come this afternoon. Some of our younger campers will have the exciting opportunity to do horseback riding…in camp! The horses are visiting Manitou, and I bet they’ll love it here as much as we all do! And I’m off to Beach Day with the Junior Unit…I can’t wait to swim and have some grilled hot dogs with them! Time to put on my sunscreen! Until next time…
